JUNE 2021: My novel CATHEDRAL is now available in bookshops in the UK and the USA and from online retailers internationally. See the "Books" page on this website for reviews and more details.

Work on IN SEARCH OF MONSTERS, a feature documentary with John Goetz, for NDR/ARTE, has just been completed. The film will be broadcast in September, but we are hoping for some kind of festival premiere before that..

I've been writing the script for FUZE - an action movie/thriller for director David Mackenzie and Sigma Films... The script is now going out into the real world, in search of cast and finance.

Work continues on pre-pre-production research for VATAN (FATHERLAND) - the real life story of Musa X; an action-packed biopic that takes in much of recent Turkish and German history. The screenplay is co-written with Atilla Oener. We are researching the possibilities for production, financing, casting etc.

INSIDE, a screenplay I wrote for Heretic Films in Greece and for director Vasilis Katsoupis has now completed shooting in Cologne... It's a kind of thriller set in a billionaire's penthouse and now enters its post-production phase.

And finally I've completed a new novel in rough draft. The working title is GHOSTS. I imagine I'll spend much of 2021 rewriting and editing it.
